Both men meet up unexpectedly in Madrid and end up spending the week partying and sleeping with (mostly foreign) women in Antón's apartment. Meanwhile, Pedro's mother and girlfriend, alarmed at his disappearance, travel to Madrid to discover his whereabouts, and mistakenly confirm their suspicion that Pedro is having a gay relationship with Antón.
